2012-2013 Programs

Programs and Forms 2012-2013

Notice

All applicants for funding must apply from our French home page since, for the time being, most of our documentation and forms exist only in French.

In order to help English-speaking applicants, here is a list of the program descriptions and forms available in English for 2012-2013.

The FRQS is pleased to offer to the scientific community an English version of its documentation. However, discrepancies between the English version and the French version may occur. In this context, in case of conflict between the terms and conditions of the English version and the French version, the terms and conditions of the French version shall prevail, the French version being the FRQS's official version.
